Modernise and Migrate Legacy Applications

Are your legacy applications holding you back? Or can you actually leverage them to help drive your cloud transformation?

Our proven legacy migration approach optimises costs, risks – and results

Like many organisations, you depend on legacy applications at the core of your operations. But aging software should not derail your cloud strategy. Such as Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 both nearing end of support in June 2019 and January 2020 respectively.

Capgemini has the knowledge, experience, and processes to confidently migrate most if not all of your applications to the cloud. By methodically assessing your software and applying business requirements, we can minimise disruption, reduce costs, and optimise speed. We can also rearchitect, rehost, and apply DevOps practices. So, you can optimise the returns on your cloud investment.

Legacy migration services to meet your needs

Capgemini’s application modernisation services allow you to take advantage of three migration options:

Lift and shift – Rehost workloads in the cloud with limited or no changes. Lift and shift enables you to “copy and paste” application workloads and run as-is in the cloud.

Cloud-enabled virtual automation – Leverage a refactor migration path for IT processes that are modified to take advantage of automation and limited cloud capabilities. This approach enables redeployment with an orchestration platform – while preparing you for a DevOps practice. Automated infrastructure operations are available in a self-service portal. Containerisation lets you benefit from microservices.

DevOps transformation – Choose this option to transform IT and business processes. You can migrate workloads as an automatic deployment with an orchestration platform and automated release-management pipeline. Deploy on a landing platform to benefit from microservices, and facilitate the implementation of a DevOps practice.

Transform and succeed
Capgemini boasts a proven track record in volume migration of legacy applications. We can help you get a handle on migration risks, determine which applications you should move in which order, and predict the value you can expect to gain from your migration. We make sure your migration initiative is well planned and designed to meet your unique needs. We help you balance speed of migration against budgetary considerations – all with your business goals in mind. Throughout the process, our expert advisory, assessments, and accelerators help make sure your cloud transformation is a success – for IT and for the business.
